Absolutely perfect

4.6 on May 01, 2017

I took my wife to Cat's Meow as a break from caring for her ill mother. Both of us absolutely LOVED the place. It's far enough out of town, yet close enough to run into Fredericksburg for dinner, shopping, and other activities. The cabin we stayed in was very nicely furnished, clean, and everything worked (a change from a previous B&B I stayed at several years before). My wife wanted to sell our house and move into the cabin -- she liked it that much.

Great place!

Took my wife to Cat's Meow (Catseye cabin) for a few days of much-needed relaxation. The cabin, while rustic-looking on the outside was modern and very well furnished inside. The cabin was well-decorated and very well-maintained. There are too many "pluses" to list. Seriously, almost everything was excellent. There were a few cons, but mostly insignificant: When on the front porch, the road noise from the nearby highway was kind of loud (but you couldn't hear it from inside the cabin). The front door lock was tricky and required a bit of effort to make sure the cabin locked. And, lastly,no bubbles in the whirlpool tub--my wife was looking forward to that. Shame they don't make a whirlpool-tub-safe bubble bath. We'll definitely be back.

This was a very peaceful place to stay. Quiet and exactly what we needed as a get away from all the hustle and bustle of city noise.

My husband and I both loved the details of the cabin. The soft lighting all around the edges of the ceiling and around the tub made it a romantic atmosphere. It was quiet outside and the porch with chairs was a nice place to sit.

Cat's Meow-very relaxing

We will definitely come back. We stayed in Catnip and had a peaceful and restful stay.

Fantastic Bed and Breakfast!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Cat's Meow, and we had a fantastic time. It is a lovely, secluded, and romantic B&B. The service was great and very non-invasive. The check-in process was all via email with no human interaction required the entire trip. The staff was readily available if we needed them, but we were left in peace. The room was cozy and very well furnished. The décor was very fun and gave the cottage a warm and cozy atmosphere. The amenities were outstanding, including the whirlpool tub. Everything was well stocked and clean. The bed was on the firmer side, which provided great back support and sleep. The only semi-downside is that there are no food places on site. Breakfast vouchers are provided for a few restaurants in town, which was just fine for us. The seclusion and tranquility was just perfect. I highly recommend the Cat's Meow and would gladly stay here again.

The Cat's Meow was the Cat's Meow!

What a great place to stay for a getaway weekend in Fredericksburg! We had a great time at the Calico Cabin of the Cat's Meow - we'll be back and we'll be recommending it to our friends and family as well!

First time

This was me and my wife's first bed and breakfast experience.we booked last minute and arrived late in the day. The home was very welcoming and the host was easy to contact with ahh any questions I had. Would defiantly go back.

Not a B&B

2.6 on May 22, 2016

It's a nice cabin away from town and private. If you want the traditional bed and breakfast, this is not it. Instead you get a $14 coupon that covers some of the cost for one of two restaurants in town. Never saw the owners. No shampoo in the bath. Decorations are "antiques" but not of great quality. The place is in a pretty area and relaxing but we don't intend to return. Lots of reviewers love this place, but we think it's a bit overrated.

Great location just the right distance from town. There is no onsite dining but voucher for breakfast which isn't enough for two people but all the places in town to eat are great!

About the innkeepers

Hi, my name is Pauline Barron and my parents used to take in guests in their house back home in the U.K. So it is nothing unusual for me to do something similar. Although I do not have them in my house. I built 3 cabins on my property as I think today people like their privacy. You meet so many wonderful and diverse people in this business and I have tons of guests who come back to see me time and time again to stay with me. I feel like they're old friends.
